Full Strength Funk is back!
We are playing at Teo Leo’s 5302 Napa Street in Linda Vista this Saturday at the very reasonable hour of 7pm, if you are ready to get funked up and let your hair down. This outdoor venue makes it both fun and safe to rock out and socialize – all things considered, with San Diego’s #1 rated cover band… Tio Leo’s live music (tioleos.com)
My son Arman will be playing keys and I will sit in on percussion, when I am not shake, shake, shaking on the dance floor with my wife Barb!
Hope to see you there..
Mentorship 2.0, Fostering a Community of Practice:
Most of us intuitively know we can learn and grow with the help of experienced mentors and/or peers who share our same values and are committed to our success. The value of mentor and peer relationships are arguably even more critical in a post-COVID environment with uncharted seas and frequent storms we have not experienced before. Since no one of us is as smart as all of us, and we are all striving to make sense and create new ways to grow and improve our results, those who can tap the collective wisdom of the group might find themselves at a clear advantage.
North County Philanthropy Council (NCPC) is planning to unveil Mentorship 2.0, Fostering a Community of Practice, in November 2021. This new mentorship model creates cohorts of experienced and caring peer learning communities to help professionals grow and maximize their value for the causes that matter most to them.
We are conducting focus groups with community leaders like you to obtain feedback on Mentorship 2.0, prior to its launch. Each focus group will consist of approximately 10 participants on a one-hour Zoom conference call.
Focus group times – you will choose ONE:
Wednesday, Oct. 13 from 9 am to 10 am
Thursday, Oct. 14 from 3 pm to 4 pm
We invite you to attend one of these sessions to share your thoughts abouts this new NCPC mentor/peer development program. Space is limited. You may sign-up HERE if you are able to join us. Please let us know by October 11 if you are able to participate in this exciting new offering from NCPC.
Thank you for all you do for our community!
